Detailed Product Description
San Francisco, Johnck & Seeger, 1936, 1st special limited (400 copies) edition. 103 pp, 10 b/w photos. Hardcover. Fine.
 
Presentation copy with inscription to Mrs. John Johnck (publisher), a pamphlet by Taylor on naturalist Ludwig Kumlien and a letter (page 2 pictured below) to Mrs. Johnck from the author laid in. 




Includes essays on Yosemite Indians, Chief Tenaya and others; Indian villages and camp-sites; Early inhabitants: J.C. Lamon, J.M. Hutchings, Galen Clark, John Muir; Building of Coulterville Road; Pergoy Register; Sketches of Early artists in Yosemite: Ayres, T. Hill, A. Bierstadt, C. Jorgensen, W. Kieth, T. Moran; Cemetery; Yosemite Fire Fall.

This title was well received in the 1930s for its coverage of early white settlement in the Yosemite Valley, the native population then present, their story continuing through the years and the summary coverage of the effort to protect the Yosemite Valley by John Muir and others, all handsomely printed by Johnck & Seeger of San Francisco.
